The first trailer has released, and it gives off a very Goosebumps meets Harry Potter feel. They tried to throw in slight bits of humor amongst the very family friendly horror, but all seems very repetitive to what we have seen in the past. Of course, since it comes from an older book, it is new in its own stance but maybe they just made the film a little late.ScreenGeek
Those of us with children and a love for horror can at least get our young ones into the obsession early with this clean adaption of the gothic novel, as the trailer is quite entertaining for the younger age. When it comes to how the movie will be, that is to be determined as true horror fans need to take a step back and realize this is meant for the kids who do not have the same level as experience judging scary movies. It does seem very fun and like a good day out at the theaters for a family, but I would assume that the older crowd will not be jumping for joy to run and see this film – unless they have an attachment to the novel itself.
